Change is good people oh and hi, lol

Hi I'm Monique, 29 yrs old, I live in Philly, but I'm a West Virginia country girl at heart. I have no babies (except for my cat Babs) and just recently got my Usher on (please excuse while I do my happy dance).

I always seem to have a lot to say on a variety of things and blogging seems like a good outlet. I am pretty random, so I am liable to talk about life, love, school, work, politics, whatever and they might all end up in the same blog, lol. My life has changed so much in just one year, who would have ever thought. I guess I will begin my blogging career with some words of wisdom I received that helped carry me through the last crazy year. 


Accustomed as we are to change, or unaccustomed, we think of a change of heart, of clothes, of life, with some uncertainty.
—Josephine Miles

Being used to a situation, even a painful one, carries with it a level of comfort. Moving away from the pain, changing the situation, be it job, home, or marriage, takes courage and support from other persons. But even more it takes faith that the change will benefit us. For most of us, the pain will need to worsen.

In retrospect, we wonder why it took us so long. We forget, from one instance to the next, that a new door cannot open until we've closed one behind us. The more important fact is that a new one will always open without fail. The pain of the old experience is trying to push us to new challenges, new opportunities, and new growth. We can handle the change; we can handle the growth. We are never given more than we can handle, and we are always given just what we need.

Experience can't prepare us for the ramifications of a new change. But our trust in friends, and our faith in the spiritual process of life, can and will see us through whatever comes.

If a change of any kind is facing me today, I will know that I am not alone. Whatever I am facing is right for me and necessary to my well-being. Life is growth. The next stage of my life awaits me.
